biden. because they could be rivals for the democratic nomination in 2016. but i think it may have been just exactly what barack obama said. a chance to say thank you. >> and he had called her one of the finest secretaries of state. with that said here, susan, last day, this friday, for secretary clinton. what can't president obama do in his second term without her? we've said it so many times. she's the most traveled, has spent the most miles in the air. the administration also according to what steve croft was pointing out in the interview, saying they had no major foreign policy accomplishments, major ones, that is, that they could hold high was his question in the first four years. will that change for kerry? will that be different in this second term with hillary clinton gone? >> i think there are some openings for the obama administration that weren't there in the first four years. you know, we're out of iraq. we're going to be out of afghanistan, our troops out of afghanistan at the end of next year. i think there are going to be some foreign policy challenges with iran and syria
might see movement on in weeks ahead. >> bret: we'll follow it. thank you. vice president biden down the road in virginia today. generally pro-gun state, the talk about gun control. see how the round table control in richmond after they worked on gun safety following the shootings at virginia tech. there are few subjects more divisive in the last half century than abortion. no day on the californian der that brings pro-life advocates to the like the annual protection against the supreme court ruling that legalized them. >> unadapted by the cold temperatures and threat of snow they came to washington for four decades to instill a culture in life and nation that they say have seen 55 million abortions since the land mark roe v. wade decision was handed down. >> can a nation long endure that does not respect the sanctity of life? >> rand paul's question is backed by stunning numbers. they find four in step unintended pregnancies in the u.s. end in abortion. one-third of american people have an abortion by the age of 45. the procedure is decreasing overall, among poor women are up 18%. >
? >> sure. >> okay. just wanted to make sure i heard you right. let's talk about hillary clinton, joe biden and the president of the united states. here's a clip from the "60 minutes" interview. >> you guys, in it the press, are incorageable. i was literally inaugurated four days ago. >> right. >> and you're talking about elections four years from now. >> i am, as you know, i am still secretary of state, so i'm out of politics, and i'm forbidden even from hearing these questions. i think that, you know, look, obviously, the president and i care deeply about what's going to happen for our country in the future. and i don't think, you know, either he or i can make predictions about what's going to happen tomorrow or for the next year. >> hilary, who do you think he would prefer to succeed him, biden or hillary clinton? >> sofie's choice, wolf. two of his favorites. i think the president is hoping he is not going to have to choose between the the two. they'll work it out among themselves. because he has very deep affection for both joe biden and hillary clinton. and, you know, my guess is that
from the menace of gun violence. >> reporter: on friday vice president biden held a round table discussion in richmond, virginia. >> we talked about the notion of a universal background check. >> reporter: but there is still strong opposition that was on display in gun shows across the country today. many, which saw record crowds. senator dianne feinstein acknowledged the tough fight ahead when she proposed a ban on more than 100 types of assault weapons and high capacity magazine clips. >> this is really an uphill road. >> reporter: the national rifle association responded sharply in a statement. the american people know gun bans do not work and we are confident congress will reject senator feinstein's wrong headed approach. according to political analysts the president's gun control proposal will face an uncertain future. >> there are some things on guns that might be able to be done like universal background checks but an assault weapons ban i think is not in the cards this year. >> reporter: those at today's march say something has to change. >> to stand here and see all the
president joe biden is bringing the battle of the gun control right to the heart of the opposition. >> biden is taking his case right to the heart of pro-gun virginia. the move comes after democrats and congress rolled out their plans. and nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> good morning, norah and charlie. they started with perhaps the most controversial weapon, an assaults weapons ban. it's a key component of the recommendations that vice president biden made to the president earlier this month, and today he is heading to richmond, virginia, with several cabinet members to try and sell it. mr. biden is even taking the fight online, making his gun control argument thursday in a web chat. >> i'm much less concerned, quite frankly, about what you'd call an assault weapon than i am the malg zone and the number of rounds that can be held in a magazine. >> the bill senate democrats introduced thursday would ban both. it's a tougher version of the assaults weapons ban that koj let lapse in 2004. this version closes some of the loopholes that manufacturers were able to exploit
the announcement? >> he has jack lew. he has joe biden to send up for the all-important relationships on capitol hill. i think this was a legacy pick. the president now has as we know an ambitious agenda that he laid out in the inaugural address. the question is, who is going to protect those goals from him? it's someone he has been with ever since his federal public life has started. that's mcdonough. this is somebody he trusts to protect not just himself. not just the staff, but to move that legacy and the obama era sooner or later will come to an end. the president clearly wants to make the major shape now. i think that's why he picked this man he trusts and has known for so long. >> john kerry ends before the senate foreign relations committee and he will be confirmed. i don't think there is any doubt about that. chuck hagel, that could be a little bit more. >> i think they will rough him up and be more lively than the john kerry hearings. in the end, the numbers. once senator schumer democrat said he answered all my questions, we know there have been meetings with others who have been criti
take it much harder. >> so, chuck, how is joe biden feeling today? >> we're trying to see if they peeled him off the ceiling after he found out this was going to happen. >> the reason the president wanted to do this, and the reason he thought he owed her a public thanks is i got two names for you. john mccain, the other is ted kennedy. ted kennedy was a thorn in jimmy carter's side. kept the party pretty divided in times in the late 1970s. john mccain and george w. bush, very bad relationship in that first term. made getting some things done on capitol hill very difficult. difficult at times for george w. bush to unite his party sometimes, but even unite independents, and what did obama not want? that same issue, and that's why he wanted hillary clinton in his cabinet, in his white house, so he didn't have that. it kept the party united. that's what he was thanking her for more than anything else, which was sort of thank you for keeping the party united and not going to senate, which would have been, you know, think about every moment in the obama first term and what life
of 2012. the white house meeting also included vice president biden and cabinet officials, along with the heads of the major cities chiefs association and the major county sheriffs association. we recognize that this is an issue that elicits a lot of passion all across the country. hopefully if law enforcement officials who are dealing with this stuff every single day can come to some basic consensus in terms of steps that we need to take, congress is going to be paying attention to them and we'll be able to make progress. >> sreenivasan: president obama renewed his push for a ban on assault-style weapons. but he also said washington has to "get serious" about universal background checks and mental health issues. the boy scouts confirmed today they're reconsidering a longstanding ban on gay scouts and leaders. a spokesman said the policy may be changed to let sponsors of individual units decide for themselves. sponsoring groups are generally churches and civic organizations. protests over the gay ban have prompted some corporations to stop donating money to the scouts. a $50 bill

enforcement surveillance and for biden to leave -- forbidden to leave tunis. director muller told me that that had been confirmed to him by the tunisians. >> just very briefly, we don't know who -- no one's been held accountable, charged with this offense. before gaddafi was taken out, my understanding is the nation of qatar shipped in 18 shipments, 20,000 tons of weapons, machine guns, r.p.g.'s into the region to help different groups overthrow omar gaddafi. the united states gave a wink and a nod to this and i'd like a written answer to that, mr. chairman. >> thank you. we'll go now to mr. cicilline from rhode island. >> thank you, mr. chairman. thank you, madam secretary, for your extraordinary service to our country. that has earned you the deep respect and admiration of people all over the world and has enhanced america's standing all over the globe. your leadership on women's issues, lgbt equality, supporting emerging democracies and enhancing american national security are too numerous to list. but i want to begin by thanking you for all of your hard work and everything you ha
by then-senator joe biden, was a watershed moment in our history. in the years since, we have come together in a bipartisan way to re-authorize and expand the reach of this law. now we must do it again. the last congress had the opportunity to take this action. the senate passed a strong bill with a bipartisan vote of 68-31. 68-31. yet house republicans refused to bring the senate's bipartisan bill to the floor, leaving millions without a critical line of defense against domestic violence. this congress has a chance to correct the mistake without further delay. today with 158 co-sponsors and counting, that's in the house, including every woman democrat in the house, democrats are re-introducing the re-authorization of the violence against women act which would expand protections to lgbt, immigrants and native americans. this has bipartisan support in the senate, including key women senators. it is bipartisan. and time for the house republicans to join suit and join the senate in a bipartisan backing of this measure. failure to enact this bill would deprive women and children of vit
you. [chanting] >> obama! >> vice president biden, mr. chief justice, members of the united states congress, distinguished guests, and fellow citizens -- each time we gather to inaugurate a president we bear witness to the enduring strength of our constitution. we affirm the promise of our democracy. we recall that what binds this nation together is not the colors of our skin or the tenets of our faith or the origins of our names. what makes us exceptional -- what makes us american -- is our allegiance to an idea articulated in a declaration made more than two centuries ago: "we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." today we continue a never-ending journey to bridge the meaning of those words with the realities of our time. for history tells us that while these truths may be self- evident, they've never been self-executing; that while freedom is a gift from god, it must be secured by his people here on earth.

on the multinational stage. when vice-president biden said in this chair he said on more than one occasion, good international relationships are always predicated on strong interpersonal relationships. i think we can all agree the you have said the higher standard for developing those relationships throughout your career and as secretary of state you will continue to strengthen those relationships on behalf of the president and the further of american foreign policy. all have some questions later on policies and your views, including how you explain to world leaders how you could have been rooting for the boston red sox instead of what the world knows as the new york yankees as a team of the world, but let me say, mr. chairman, it has been a pleasure working with you and looking forward to continuing to work with you on the issues you're a champion of the years. fighting global terrorism, preventing the spread of nuclear biological chemical weapons, fighting for human rights and against hiv aids to a round the world. fighting crime corruption, drug trafficking, and standing up, as you always hav
